Unexpected events are part of life!  You can't stop them from happening but we could try our best to prepare for them. Like the old saying goes: You can't predict the future, but you can plan for it!   Well, our question for you today is: Do you have a preparation, plan, and people in place for a vaccine refrigerator power outage?

 

Consider your vaccine or medication fridge. These refrigerators serve not only as an important role in helping nurses and doctors provide aid to their patients, but they also can be too costly to risk a failure.

What would you do if the power went out?

These things happen, power surges can blow outlets and circuit breakers. Storms can knock out the grid and it can take days for the power company to get it back on. The wiring in your building could be old and fail.

Do you have a protocol in place in case this happens? Have you prepared steps you can take in emergency situations? A medical fridge is crucial in preserving patient’s health. Do you have a plan to prevent a disaster like this from happening in the first place?

Energy Emergencies and How to Handle Them
 

Medical fridges protect both a patient’s safety and store part of a private practice or hospital’s investment. Without power vaccines go bad and need disposed of. Ask yourself this, can your practice handle losing its vaccine or medicine stock?

You answer likely is, probably not. If an emergency happened today would you have the storage space to preserve your stock in other fridges? Even if you happened to have extra space would you have the time and manpower needed during a power outage to safely move, store, and track your product?

The key to great emergency preparation lies in assuming anything can happen and creating responses to these situations. The best solutions are easy to use, affordable, and can offer protection for days on end while waiting for the power to be restored.
